Board certification makes the difference in a divorce case

On Behalf of | Sep 14, 2017 | Prenuptial Agreements

You decided that you wanted to get a divorce long ago, but you’ve been putting it off because you think finding an attorney may be difficult. It’s important, of course, to understand who you should work with and why.

One of the things you should consider is the attorney’s background in marital and family law. Attorneys who have board certification are likely to be better educated and to have a long history of legal work behind them. For many, these are the best attorneys for the job.

Why is it important to work with an attorney with a board certification?

A board certification signifies that an attorney is a qualified specialist in his or her field. These individuals are dedicated to excellence.

Board certified attorneys have received the highest evaluation of their talents, experience and competence. If you work with a board certified attorney, you can be sure that the attorney is well-versed in law and the procedures needed to help further your case.

Board certified attorneys may have B.S.C. listed following their names. They may also distinguish themselves using the Florida Bar’s certification graphic on their websites.

The Florida Bar offers 24 areas in which an attorney may become certified. Adoption, intellectual property and education law are only available in Florida. Only around 6 percent of all eligible Florida Bar members are board certified.

Working with a board certified attorney can help give you the confidence you need to move forward with your divorce. Our website has more on the importance of working with a legal professional who you can trust to commit to your case.
